The cool thing about Starbucks

One good thing about Starbucks is the price. While generally too expensive, you’ll notice that the prices are the same across a country. An espresso will cost more or less the same  whether you find yourself in Time Square, NYC or Lynnwood, WA. The same goes for Europe. No matter how expensive the neighborhood you find yourself in is, you can depend on generally the same prices under the green orb.

On top of that, you can usually depend on some solid, free internet. Somebody needs to make a movie about the entrepreneurs who run their business out of Starbucks. Just like George Cluny could say what terminals he lives in in “Up in the Air”, I could—along with thousands of other small-timers—say which internet cafes like Starbucks we spend hours pounding away at our businesses. Just like “Castaway” with Tom Hanks was a solid extended commercial for FedEx, the same could be true for this young entrepreneur’s story in Starbucks.

Great mix between learning and leisure. Our tour guide, Lauren, was extremely knowledgable and also very well connected. The weekend was a blast!
